Looking for applications, data visualisations or tools to help inform Ballarat City Council's strategic vision for a '10 minute city'
The Ballarat City Council's 'Ballarat Strategy' outlines the proposed move towards the '10 minute city' ideology in which general services, schools, shops and business centres are situated within a 10 minute walking or cycling radius by the majority of residents. However being a predominantly car-centric metropolis, Ballarat residents will need to be introduced to, or reminded of the benefits of walking, riding or using public transport including health and fitness and socialising and engaging with the community. A response to this challenge could incorporate some of the following themes: accessibility, food security, tourism, community engagement in city development approval, mapping a changing city, transport or sustainability.

Ballarat 10 Minute Planr


What is it?

The Ballarat 10 Minute Planr is an app that lets you visualise the vision of Ballarat as a 10 minute city - that is, being able to travel to essential services within 10 minutes. The current vision is enabled through driving, however the vision is to support 10 minutes by walking, riding, and public transport.

Who are you?

We are Brett James, Josh Stewart, and Robert Layton from the Ballarat Hackerspace.
